So I have a PS/2 Model 85 that I picked up alongside one other 85 and two 95s a few months ago, however this one has been sitting in my garage since I picked it up as it previously had "tenants". Now that the weather is nice and the other systens are either running or just waiting on parts I decided to finally crack this one open. All I can really say right now is that this is just a disheartening state.




Luckily the system board escaped relatively unscathed (doubly so as it's a K/N board). It's probably going to be the only salvageable piece electronics wise, so at least I'll have a spare one for my other 85. Hopefully the diskette drive is salvageable as well and that the corrosion is just on the shell, but I'm not too sure about that. Other than that, I hope to be able to save the chassis, as pretty much every other part can be sourced to build a new system.

Thoughts? Anyone have any tips for removing rodent grime and corrosion from the chassis?
